deficiencies, that is quote. what the report said they find on benghazi. who is the senior level and will they be held accountable? >> that is why secretary of state hillary clinton must appear before our foreign affairs committee and she has promised to do so before january 15th, we're going to hold her to her word. we know she will be appearing there. it's the first step of the whole state department and obama administration accountable after this was a terrorist attack that resulted in a murder of four brave americans. we talk a lot about ambassador stevens, don't forget smith, woods and doherty, fine americans. we have to ask ourselves, why didn't the state department not heed the intelligence reports, if you read them they are so clear in telegraphing in graphic terms this consulate is surrounded by extremist elements and they would be overrun in a minute. also, why did the state department not heed repeated requests by the consulate in benghazi for security. this is an important day in american history. 9/11 how could we not properly protect the embassy, our consulate there

in benghazi. take a listen. >> susan rice has done a great job as our u.n. ambassador. she has been a stalwart colleague in a lot of the tough decisions that we've had to make. and certainly with respect to defending our national interests and national security at the united nations. >> so clinton is also going to testify on benghazi next week. what are the politics of all of this for secretary clinton? and are there risks for her here? >> i don't think there are necessarily risks for her here as long as she stays out of the whole fray of susan rice and congressional republicans. there's an awful lot going on on that score, but i tnk hillary clinton may be able to keep herself above all that. by the way, we keep expecting the white house for this rice situation to be resolved. we fully expect president clinton to make -- excuse me, president obama to make his announcement about his national security team any day now. >> what do you hear with regards to that, david? are you hearing that susan race is going -- susan rice is going to get the nod or that the waters are shark infested and -- >> com
